I’m going to keep my superhero reviews short and sweet. “Arrow” is in flux while Oliver recovers from his duel with Ra’as al Ghul, and “Agent Carter” came out the gate strong and has cooled down a little since. Let’s mix DC and Marvel:
I am so happy I decided on a whim to binge “Arrow” a few months ago. Because I got sucked into Oliver Queen’s universe, I was ready to take on Barry Allen’s in “The Flash” when that premiered. If any “Arrow” fan isn’t watching “The Flash” or vice versa, I highly recommend you fix that immediately. Not watching one of these brilliant shows would suck some of the fun out of this entertaining crossover episode.
“Guilty” felt like an episode that was meant to be a set-up for bigger things to come. We got some character development for Ted Grant, confirmation that Laurel could actually make a believable Black Canary and the introduction of a villain that can’t possibly translate well to TV. Then again, I didn’t think Laurel could pull off Sara’s Black Canary costume, but the Internet proved me wrong on that one:
This episode had me excited since the CW released those promotional photos of goth Felicity. Ms. Smoak has been this show’s not-so-secret weapon since her role was expanded midway through Season 1, and it’s about time she got her own episode. And for the most part, her origin story did not disappoint. Kudos to Emily Betts Rickards for absolutely nailing her first big episode.
